E-BOOK EXCERPT

The story of The Fireman and The Waitress is an analogy for the process of Dessanomics - a process developed to help maximize wealth and most efficiently manage debt and tax burden. The Fireman and The Waitress were clients of Dessa's, and early on in their relationship, Dessa realized that this particular couple was an iconic representation of most of her clients. They were both in their late 40s, making a good living at jobs they enjoyed, and while they were making regular contributions to an RRSP and making accelerated payments on their mortgage, they were running out of money before they ran out of month! They had a mortgage, credit cards and a line of credit, and despite all their success, it seemed like they just weren't getting ahead. Using Dessanomics, and the money they used to pay to their bank and the government, The Fireman and The Waitress were able to turn their financial lives around. Now they are living comfortably with more cash flow, a reduced tax burden and a mortgage that will be paid in half the time! They're paying themselves first, and they're looking forward to an active, financially stable retirement. There are a lot of books about financial planning on the market today. This book is different - it doesn't feel like you're putting your money on a diet! This book is for everyone who wants to make a million dollar difference in their lives, without giving up living in the process.
